The Live 2003 Cover

Live 2003 is a live album by Coldplay, first released in November 2003. The set features concerts filmed at Sydney's Hordern Pavilion on July 21 and 22, 2003.

Live 2003 includes the previously unreleased track Moses, which is exclusive to this album, and was written about Chris Martin's wife Gwyneth Paltrow. This song inspired the name of Chris and Gwyneth's second child, Moses Bruce Anthony Martin, born in 2006.

No singles were released from this album, but the cut Clocks had a small promotional radio release in some countries like Spain. The album is the band's second live release, following Trouble – Norwegian Live EP from 2001.



It was nominated for "Best Music Video: Long Form" at the 2004 Grammy Awards.

Mistake in the credits

The first sentence in the credits (starting at 1h:30m) is:

Filmed At The Horden Pavillion

But a Horden Pavillion does not exist.

It means Hordern Pavilion.

The Oracle on Live 2003

August 11, 2010 - submitted by Jim, United Kingdom
Q. Oracle,
A while back you answered a question about Chris not playing the guitar on Yellow in Live 2003. Why did he not want to play? And do the technicians/backstage people play some instruments that the band can't/don't want to play?
Also, do you think Chris Martin looks a bit like Formula 1 driver Jenson Button, or is it just me?!
The Oracle replies:
At that time Chris wanted to do something different during the song to make it more interesting for the audience and for himself. It was decided that Matt McGinn would play the guitar part on that tour but generally speaking the techs don't play instruments; the band do. There are occasions where backing tracks are used for instance, the introduction to Life in Technicolor...
You're not the only one to comment on a similarity between Chris and Jenson but although I see why people say that, I don't really think it's a great likeness.

Q. Dear Oracle
What does Chris Martin say in "Everything's Not Lost" performance on Live 2003 DVD from 5:45 to 6:03, I've been looking for it but I haven't found anything. Here is the link.
The Oracle replies:
This isn't exactly verbatim but pretty much spot on:
"So if you're sat down or even if you're right at the back this would be the great point for you to start singing with us because we're not gonna be in this neck of the woods for quite a while so you may as well sing as loud as you can now. Ready?"

Q. In the live 2003 version of Yellow, who is playing the acoustic guitar? Because Jonny's playing the lead and Chris doesn't have a guitar.. Is it a recorded track maybe?
The Oracle replies:
It's not a pre-recorded backing track; it was Matt McGinn, Jonny's guitar tech and now author of Roadie . Chris asked him to play the guitar part from off stage which Matt writes about in his book from page 49.

Q. Dear Oracle, what's the music that can be heard in the subtitles menu for the tour diary in the Live 2003 DVD? I find that guitar riff familiar... Is it an early version of The World Turned Upside Down, the magnificent Fix You B-Side?
Thanks for answering this... It's been puzzling me for years!
The Oracle replies:
The DVD menu has different songs playing for each feature. As you asked about the Tour Diary section I will start with that. It's Yellow; it may be harder to recognize as it's the extended intro version.
The music that can be heard at the main menu is Politik, the Concert is Shiver and the Extras is A Rush of Blood to the Head.
